Three Reasons to Insulate your Attic with Spray FoamWhen a builder or homeowner hears the word “insulation” the attic is the first area of a home to come to mind. While whole house insulation and air sealing is important to save energy and create a comfortable interior, the attic is one of the most important areas of the home to insulate first.
Do you really know why attic insulation is important? Here are three reasons to upgrade your attic with spray foam insulation to add r-value and seal air leaks:
- Air naturally moves upward through your house. Proper attic insulation combined with air sealing prevents air that has already been heated or cooled from escaping your home.
- Heating and cooling costs account for up to 50-70 percent of the energy used in an average home. By taking steps to keep conditioned air inside your home, you can keep energy bills low and reduce wear and tear on your HVAC system.
- Insulating and air sealing your attic can prevent unconditioned air from entering your home. This helps maintain a comfortable temperature in the upper level of the home and keeps pests and other pollutants out of your home.
Spray foam insulation insulates and air seals with one step. Upgrading your attic to spray foam insulation is an effective way to save money on monthly energy bills each month and keep your home comfortable.
